3.How does your own gender socialization affect your perceptions of the messages you have observed and described? Think carefully about how you are observing a situation through the perceptual lens of your own gender.

Use a minimum of two concepts defined in your own words. These definitions will necessarily approximate textbook or lecture definitions but should be paraphrased rather than repeated word for word.
